ALBUQUERQUE, N.M.— UNM head volleyball coach Jon Newman-Gonchar and staff are offering another summer of Lobo volleyball camp with a Pass, Set & Hit Volleyball Camp.
Registration is now open for four different camp options and three one-day academy sessions that begin on June 24 and go to July 23 and are offered for various grade levels.
On June 24, the Lobos will hold a College Prep Camp for campers entering the 9th to 12 grade and is recommended for girls and boys who want a full six-hour day of training over the fundamental skills of volleyball. The coaching staff stresses individual and team play, while providing training in the fundamentals of serving, passing, setting, hitting, defense and court coverage.
From July 19-21, the Lobos will host an All-Skills Camp for campers entering 5th to 12th grade. Players of any skill level are invited to attend and will receive instruction in the fundamental skill areas of serving, passing, setting, hitting, and defense.
Going on at the same time will be a Lil’ Lobos Camp for kindergartners through 6th graders, which will take place between 9 a.m. and noon. This camp is designed to introduce youth entering kindergarten through 6th grade to the game of volleyball and will go over the fundamental skills of serving, passing, setting, hitting, digging and team play.
On the 19th, there will also be a Setter Academy from 1-4 p.m. for volleyball players entering the 6th to 12th grades who want to improve in the skills in setting such as setting technique, footwork patterns and team tactics.
In the afternoon of the 20th, there will be a Hitter Academy designed for volleyball athletes (girls and boys) entering the 6th to 12th grades, who want to improve as an attacker. Players of any position are allowed to register for this academy, but the primary areas of skill instruction will be specific to pin and middle hitters, including attacking technique, developing their attacking toolkit, hitting in first ball and transition.
Libero Academy will take place between 1-4 p.m. on July 21, designed for volleyball athletes (girls and boys) who want to improve in the skills in defense and passing. Players of any position are allowed to register for this academy, but the primary areas of skill instruction will be specific to the libero/defensive specialist position and will go over passing, developing your defensive tool kit, out-of-system setting and some serving. Campers will train in a high-repetition environment and compete in some game-like play and competitions.
